Will Eisner

Will Eisner was a multi-award-winning American cartoonist who created The Spirit. He was the writer of A Contract with God, To the Heart of the Storm, Invisible People, and Dropsie Avenue.

Eisner was a pioneering force in comics for over six decades, consequently, the comic industry's highest honor, the Eisner Award, was named for him. He was a multi-faceted artist who coined the term "sequential art" and was a pioneer of the graphic novel.

Will founded the American Visual Corporation in 1951, which published numerous official manuals in comic form, magazines and other instructional materials for the government, related agencies, businesses and schools. He was also an educator who taught classes for years at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, and authored two definitive instructional books on the medium, Comics and Sequential Art and Graphic Storytelling.
